how do they work and do they replace the shock? I have HD Monroe's on it now but when I hook up my 6 ton 5th the backend starts going down. The hitch weight is 1 ton which my 350 should handle but I don't think it did. After traveling 3000 miles I noticed a drip where the drive shaft goes into the tranny and I've been told this isn't a pressure seal and this is a new tranny when started traveling. I'm thinking maybe the drive shaft became misallined when I attached the 5th.

You keep your shocks, the bags fit over the spring's..

Seal just could have got nicked when the shaft was installed.

DS should be straight and the 5th wheel wouldn't cause this issue.

Weight the truck front and rear then reweigh with the 5th wheel loaded up with everything you take. Check the door tag for frt and rear axle weight max #'s ..bet your over weight
